Channel Islands 2-day on MV Truth; October 19-20th; 2018 (Light Load)
Join us on Truth Aquatics MV Conception for two full days of diving the Northern Channel Islands! These waters teem with life due to the temperate, nutrient-rich waters, making every dive a new experience and ideal for lobster hunters and photographers alike. Dive locations vary from hundred-foot-tall walls and enormous pinnacles to kelp forests and rocky reefs. The crew aims to start at San Miguel Island and work its way down to Santa Rosa then Santa Cruz. We aim for 3-4 dives the first day and 3 dives on the second day, with the opportunity for a night dive (weather permitting).
2-Day Discovery dives to the Northern Channel Islands are geared toward skill levels ranging from newly certified divers to intermediate level divers and is also recommended for divers looking to get back into the water after a break from diving. Dives will take place in locations with less challenging conditions that allow for a fun, relaxing experience and to hone your dive skills. The dive sites are typically more sheltered and under 50 feet in depth. If you are ready for a less rigorous but adventurous getaway, this is a great trip for you. It's like diving Monterey, but clearer and (a little) warmer!
Included: You will have at least one Wallin's instructor on board to help with coordination and guiding, though the dive sites are simple and there is little to no current.
This will be a light load, meaning we will have less than the allotted 15 max people (Boat accommodates 30, we are doing a half-charter and another shop may be doing the other half, or it may be empty!) Sleeping arrangement is dormatory style. Showers and a dryer is on board.
Gear transport is offered free of charge to Wallin's customers. Contact the shop if you would like your gear transported. Some people like to fly down. Just remember, you must wait 18 hours before flying.
